Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I received notification regarding the recall of the airbags in my vehicle over a year ago and of my ignition over 6 months ago but have not to date received a letter to have my vehicle repaired. I would my vehicle to be repaired asap as my small niece and nephew sometimes travel with me in my vehicle and I am concerned of their safety as well as mine and my husband. When I first bought the car in 2009, I had issues with the ignition switch. I would start the car and nothing would work ie: The radio, inside dashboard lights, etc. I took the car to Chrysler several times and they could not determine what the problem was.
